Favorite Simpson Memory: One of my best memories from attending Simpson College was my May Term Study Abroad experience. I spent one May Term in England and Scotland learning about history, architecture, art and religion. To make my experience even better, my high school history teacher asked me to mentor his AP European History class across Europe so I extended my travel abroad experience well into the summer. The experience was amazing! I met so many new people, ate new foods and learned about many other cultures.
Favorite Simpson Tradition: Midnight Breakfast! The Campus Activities Board at Simpson plans the most fun events to occur all year long. But, my favorite tradition was meeting up with friends after a long night of studying to have fun and take a break.
Simpson Insider Tip: Try new things! At Simpson, you will have the opportunity to explore new academic areas, join clubs, enjoy world-class theater and music performances and participate in athletics. Take advantage of these things and learn about yourself along your journey!
